What to do if I have been working out every day for over a year and still no abs?

What to do if I have been working out every day for over a year and still no abs?

Diet: If you are not losing body fat, you do as much resistance training as you want and you'll never see your definition. Eat enough lean protein but otherwise get used to being hungry and doing a lot of aerobic fitness training. It's great you're exercising and the added gift of leanness and aerobic fitness is a great one to give yourself. ...Read more

I am a very healthy eater and exercise once a day, I want to know why I do not have abs?

I am a very healthy eater and exercise once a day, I want to know why I do not have abs?

It's about body fat: Your abs are under there somewhere but in order to see them the overlying fat on your abdomen needs to be real thin. If you push your diet and exercise you may get there but it's tough and some will never get there due to genetic reasons. Your body fat percentage needs to be in the single digits and for some, getting there means dieting too much, to the brink of harm. ...Read more

My abs monos is. 04. It was taken the day before I came down with a nasty cold. Could this explain it?

My abs monos is. 04. It was taken the day before I came down with a nasty cold. Could this explain it?

Unlikely, I presume: That you're referring to a WBC count on a CBC & the concentration (not total body quantity) of monocytes (1 of the 5 major WBC groups by microscopy) reported. At any given time, most monocytes are outside the blood stream & called macrophages (the same cells producing arterial disease if they die in place in the walls of arteries, body wide).

I get pains on the right side of my abs sometimes lower sometimes high. It happened once or twice a day before I eat sometime or after I eat something?

Checks for abd pain: Causes of recurrent abdominal discomfort as described may be identified by first addressing signs/symptoms so as to localize the organ involved: vaginal discharge or bleeding, alteration in periods, pregnancy risk?

Does doing 100 sit ups a day for 2 days help to get abs?

Can you let me know how many sit ups should I do a day to get ripped abs?

Can you let me know how many sit ups should I do a day to get ripped abs?

Reduce body fat: Definition has more to do with having very little bodyfat, no more on your trunk than on the back of your hand. This has little to do with working particular muscle groups. You know this already, and you may also discover that working abs against the strongest possible resistance, as at a pulldown station, may increase their size & hardness more than a great number of reps. Glad you are doing this. ...Read more

Can you tell me what number of sit ups a day do I need to do to get abs in 6 weeks?

Can you tell me what number of sit ups a day do I need to do to get abs in 6 weeks?

Not the key: The secret is diet. Eat enough lean protein to remain adequately muscled, and otherwise keep a good low-calorie diet, becoming accustomed to become fairly hungry much of the time. Eat only to satisfy hunger. Your ab muscles will grow more if you do cable crunches or some other resistance exercise -- 3 sets of 10 reps daily maximum resistance. ...Read more

Can you tell me if I do 100 sit ups a day, 50 in the morning and 50 in the evening, how long will it be until I get abs?

Diet is key: You'll develop the mass of these muscles more effectively by doing cable crunches 3 sets of 10 maximum resistance daily. You also need to diet -- eat enough lean protein to stay in muscle-building mode, a low-calorie balanced diet, and get used to eating only to satisfy real hunger. ...Read more

Can you tell me if I do 100 sit ups a day, 50 in the morning and 50 in the evening, how long will it take until I get abs?

Depends: 100 sit ups a day will strengthen your abdominal muscles in about 90-120 days. However, if you are asking about tone and definition of the "washboard stomach, " this is much more than sit-ups. This has more to do with diet than exercise. If you have belly fat, that needs to go away to achieve the "desired look.". ...Read more

I am working on my abs and am doing 100 crunches a day along with my other workout routine, is that enough?

May be: Every one talks about doing abdominal crunches to get 6 pack my own personal experience is that you have to be of ideal weight and therefore need to loose weight before you reach goal most effective exercise is abdominal breathing which invokes letting your belly expand out while you breath in and actively contract your abdominal muscles while you breathe out and resistance exercise for obliques. ...Read more

How long does it take to get toned arms and abs if I work out every other day?

8 weeks: You should generally see noticable changes at approximately the eight week mark. The arms may show changes sooner than the abs particularly if you are carrying some fat around your middle. This does not mean that the abs are not getting toned but they may not show as well until the fat is burned off. ...Read more

I have a device made of ABS Plastic and resin that goes into mouth over the tongue for about twenty minutes a day. Is the material carcinogenic?

I have a device made of ABS Plastic and resin that goes into mouth over the tongue for about twenty minutes a day. Is the material carcinogenic?

Probably safe but...: ABS is derived from acrylonitrile, butadiene, and styrene. ABS is generally a low hazard material, & presents few risks to health. However, alcohol can produce a reaction similar to heating & styrene is evolved. Also, ABS should not be used in permanent medical implants. Ref: http://en. Wikipedia.

Muscle spasm: What you are experiencing is most likely spasm of some of the anterior abdominal wall muscles. They may be reacting to the work you did recently. If you continue to do controlled workout regularly, the problem should subside and stop. ...Read more

I got punched in the ab and lower abdomen area. I'm having some pain and I'm curious if it's internal bleeding but I just worked our 2 day ago (abs)?

I got punched in the ab and lower abdomen area. I'm having some pain and I'm curious if it's internal bleeding but I just worked our 2 day ago (abs)?

Not likely, but...: Being punched in the abdomen can be very dangerous, of course. It can injure your liver or spleen, or cause bruising on bowel. Most of the time, the pain is just from abdominal wall bruising (made worse, possibly, by working out). However, severe pain, bruising, swelling and/or nausea should cause you to go to the ER to be evaluated by an expert. ...Read more
